UK PM under stress to recall Parliament

London, August 19

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is under increasing pressure to recall Parliament after leaked government documents warned of widespread shortages and border delays if the United Kingdom leaves the European Union without a withdrawal agreement.

Economists have long predicted such grim scenarios, but Brexit backers have dismissed the forecasts as scare-mongering. 

Opposition Labour Party’s spokesman on Treasury issues John McDonnell on Monday supported the demands of more than 100 lawmakers, who signed a letter demanding that Johnson cut short Parliament’s summer recess to permit a debate on Brexit crisis. — AP
